History: Cathal was born into one of the few native Gaelic speaking families in Ireland, and Gaelic is his first language. His father has always been rather absent only showing up for a few months of every year. Cathal has always been the one to provide for his family. He never realized what he was until the day of his claiming. One arm dyed blue from wo\de, and the other by a large black tattoo, the mark actually glowed against his skin. A swirling Celtic knot (the replica of which is on his face), his mother was quite taken aback, and Cathal swore he had no idea how he had gotten it. It remained on him for three weeks before he was contacted by Philomena. For him it was three weeks of pure terror, the only thing he could think of was his family, even at the academy not a day goes by without thinking of his siblings (especially Eoin).
